Hi, I’m ghosty, new to T-Nation site but I’ll become a regular browser in the near future.
I’ve been training for about 2 and a half years, but the first 16months of that I was wasting my time till I started reading and listening to people who lift heavy. It’s starting to pay off.
I’m 20years old. Last year I weighed 48kg at 5"5. I used to do loads of bicep curls etc etc etc never got anywhere lol. I came across a fellow called “m&m” on nissanslvia.com fitness, diet & bodybuilding forums and changed my life.
I gained 14 kilos in 3months and started doing compound movements. In the next 5 months I found out eating was not my strong point (lol), but I continued with the training and started to grow stronger, and eat.
9 months later (i.e. today) since ‘the revelation’, at 60kg, I squat 120kg, bench 80kg, and deadlift 145kg (all raw, unassisted, and legal lifts). Overhead press 55kg, powerclean 70kg, powersnatch 50kg (my weakness is pressing power as you can see).
My favourite muscle group is my quads. I don’t talk about my 12" arms, it’s very embarressing lmfao.
Anyway here are some photo’s from a few months ago. I still have another 15-20kg to gain. My two goals are to gain weight, and to get strong. As long as I look half decent I’m not fussed. I’ve realised there is no substitute for ‘mass’ no matter how strong you are. Just got to get heavier.
